Cupid’s Advice:

Pregnancy difficulties leave broken hearts and scars for both parties in a relationship. Remember to support one another during this devastating time, without trying to find fixes that will only prolong the pain. Cupid has some advice:

1. Understand there is no quick fix: Losing a child or finding out you are unable to get pregnant is a devastating loss for anyone trying to become a parent. When someone we love is in pain, the knee-jerk reaction is to find a way to fix the problem, but there is no quick fix for a loss this painful. Like the loss of any loved one, only time will bring healing, so give yourself and your partner time to grieve and the healing will come naturally.

2. Do not jump into discussing having other children: When a mother has a miscarriage, to her she just lost a unique child, and that child is irreplaceable. It may seem like telling her that she can always have another baby offers reassurance, but it will likely only add to her pain and frustration. Instead, just support her by showing and telling her that you love her and staying by her side as long as she needs you there.

3. Be supportive and lift her back up: When a woman goes through a miscarriage or learns she is unable to get pregnant and have children, it often leads her to thoughts that she is broken. Whether she expresses this feeling out loud or not, it is common, and she needs her partner to be there for her. Hold her, love her, tell her she is not to blame and that it is not her fault.
